Basis of Design Reviews

Microrite’s team of highly experienced HVAC, design, particulate, airflow, static charge and microbiology personnel cohesively perform independent review of cleanroom design against the project’s requirements.
The design is evaluated against requirements in order to verify the outcomes of intended activities and identify issues before committing to building launch. This thorough expert review helps prevent design pitfalls that may eventually lead to contaminated product and loss of time and resources.
Building design documents are often produced collectively by architects and engineers (in structural, civil, mechanical, electrical, process engineering disciplines, etc.). For a typical cleanroom and laboratory building design process, there are five phases to architectural and engineering design services:

  • Schematic Design
  • Design Development
  • Construction Documents
  • Bidding
  • Construction Administration

Microrite’s independent “Basis of Design” review may be solicited at various progressions toward the completion of design.

  1. Schematic Design at 0% to 20% for initial basis of design review and drawings for progress review
  2. Design Development at 20% to 50% for progress of drawings
  3. Construction documents at 50% to 100% for updated basis of design review, review of documents issued for bidding and construction, as well as review of specifications

The design review process includes HVAC, plumbing, fire protection, electrical, control, process and automation systems, energy analysis and any other project-specific systems to ensure that the design built facility can support the manufacturing of contamination free product, whether the contamination is particulate, microbial, static charge or molecular in nature.
